A psychological evaluation can help you and your child gain a better understanding of their intellectual functioning, including executive functions, and social and emotional needs.
Other areas of assessment include strengths-based personality testing and vocational assessments.
Here are the core areas we offer for Psychological Assessment:
These assessments are administered to help determine child or adolescent IQ and strengths or weaknesses. Areas assessed include:
- Verbal Comprehension (including abilities associated with verbal concept formation, verbal reasoning, and knowledge acquired from the environment)
- Visual-Spatial Abilities (such as spatial processing, attentiveness to detail, and visual-motor integration)
- Fluid Reasoning (including the ability to engage in novel problem solving and interpret patterns and sequences)
- Working Memory (which focuses on attention, concentration, and emotional control)
- Processing Speed (which measures the ability to process nonverbal information rapidly)
Evaluation of Behavioral and Social-Emotional Functioning
Measures given are determined on a client’s individual needs and concerns. Areas assessed include:
- Externalizing problems (such as hyperactivity, aggression, and conduct problems)
- Internalizing problems (such as anxiety, depression, and somatic symptoms)
Other areas of assessment include a child’s social skills, functional communication, activities of daily living, ability to adapt, and leadership skills. Children are also evaluated in their attitude towards school and personal adjustment (including their relationship with peers and parents in addition to self-esteem and self-reliance).
Other evaluations may also be administered in the areas of Personality Strengths-Based Testing with a focus on Trait Based Personality Factors and Individual Strengths and Vocational Assessments to aid in career planning. For specific queries, please contact us.
